Gale Middle School wins Science Bowl Competition

SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

The Gale Ranch Middle School science team defeated 40 other schools to win the Department of Energy's National Science Bowl Competition. It culminated in a Round-Robin, Jeopardy-style contest with the Gale Ranch kids defeating a team from Vancouver, Washington.

"It was definitely a lot harder than we thought because there were a lot of good teams from all over the nation, so to win was a real challenge," said Rishi Krishnan.

The $1,000 prize goes to Gale Ranch's science department.
